you get is an augmented reimbursement from medicaid and medicare. most federally qualified health centers have about 45, 50% of their patient population, medicaid. thus, they benefit from the augmented reimbursement. our patient population, 75% uninsured only 14% medicaid, it is very hard for us to see that we could be financially sustainable unless we are able to enhance a percentage of medicaid patients that we have. with the new health care bill, many of our patients would then be eligible for medicaid and for health insurance. >> reporter: so if this legislation becomes law you can sleep easier knowing you have a better shot at keeping your doors open? >> that, plus we know our patients will have choice. >> reporter: dr. irwin told me something fascinating. he said the threshold for a family of four to qualify for medicaid is $2400 a year. $2400 a year salary, unbelievable. he would like to see that changed. of course, we bring you the growing in popularity, our absolutely unaltered sampling of taking the temperature of americans. this is our louisiana first five. we are here
